Two arrested in large scale mail theft


NEW ROCHELLE – Two people were arrested by New Rochelle Police late Wednesday afternoon after a report of two men breaking into a FedEx mailbox.

They were located a short time later with several hundred thousand dollars in checks and a large number of opened assorted mail and FedEx shipping envelopes.

Further investigation revealed that UPS and FedEx boxes had been reached and contents stolen.

None of the recovered mail appears to have been stolen in New Rochelle, and those in the area who have recently used FedEx or UPS should contact those agencies or New Rochelle Police.

Arrested were Thomas Mensah, 24, of Flushing and Xavier Montgomery, 26, of Arverne, both charged with criminal possession of stolen property and criminal mischief.

Montgomery was also charged with reckless driving.
